The level 55 spell quest using the quest finder says "Talk to Baldur Goldpaws in Northguard" but should read "in Olde Town".

Hope I'm not stating a duplicate and I don't think this was intentional:
during the quest to get scarecrow, Dworgyn says, " ... To tell you know would be premature." The proper spelling of that would be "now" not "know" If it was intentional, I guess the pun wasn't so clear to me.

I have encountered that in the last sentence of Tobias Splitsky before he gives the quest "THE WORLD IS CLOSING IN" which was "Talk to Sabra, for I think she has worked out a new plan", he didn't say the word "for".

I found another error with the dialogue of Eoin Gentlewind standing at Last Wod in the world of Khrysalis. Before claiming his first quest entitled "HAT TRICK", his very first sentences are written: "You're the great and powerful Spellbinder, aren't you? The Burrows here have many good things to say about you." But when hearing him say it, it's: "You're the great and powerful Spellbinder, aren't you? The Burrowers here have many good things to say about you." Reasonably, he spoke the right words but only mistakenly written.

Also, from the same NPC, on his fifth and sixth sentence, it's written as: "If only I had the Helm of Rodoric, then I'd be a courageous warrior. What, don't you know what the Helm of Rhodoric is?" But hearing it, he didn't say the sixth sentence but instead, only the fifth sentence alone.

Thanks for the consideration.

Actually, they are not. Written and spoken language are not always symmetrical. It in fact WAS a grammatical issue, and the corrector was accurate.

I wasn't a grammatical issue, merely a mismatch of the written and spoken. Both are grammatically correct whether spoken or written, however they should match. When the written word is captioning for spoken, it should always match the speaker, whether or not his speech is grammatically correct.

Other wise Cyrus drake I think the only reason you are so angry is you had hard time with minions cause minions take your traps like feint just to waste it on a fire cat

To Cyrus drake Teacher
  1. Yo, it should be Professor Drake. Don't call him by his first name, its disrespectful as in real life. I mean, for example, you would'nt call your math teacher John Findlay or something, Idk what math teacher you got.

I have noticed that Open chat people can't say sloth but yet text chat people can? Makes no sense at all. Especially since we have sloth mounts and can't even say what it is because of it being a red word for us open chat people.

When you first go to DS, and speak with Cyrus Drake, he says he must "scry" off to do something. Should read "scurry."

In the quest 'scroll call' there is an error.
Kalilklak's voice actor says:

"I've heard there's a yellow jacket who can attain the unattainable."

In contrast to the what the text bubble says, which is:

"I've heard there's a yellow jacket can obtain unattainable items."

Can you match this up please?

I was looking at the new updated chat menu and I found a spelling problem under housing. it says you've worked at lot at crafting. I know this is small but its something you can fix, especially after you have updated the spelling.

He says "I took the opportunity to scry ahead." That is correct. Scrying is the mystical practice of divining the truth or future.

Move the Hats from the Athame, Ring and Amulet section of the Crown Shop and put them under the Clothing Tab where they belong.

Hire someone to improve on the Crown Shop Athames, Rings and Amulets instead of throwing items on there that belong somewhere else in the Crown Shop.

I guess you had to put something on that TAB to make the list longer; how about new level 50+ Athames, Rings and Amulets, now that would be amazing!

Also, you need to place a new notice on you client splash screen that is more truthful, you did not add a TON of new items in the Crown Shop, more like a GRAM.

Shouldn't either of those be changed anyways. You cannot attain an item. It should be "...can obtain unobtainable items" or "... can obtain the unobtainable."

In the quest "Long in the tooth" (part of the quest line to get the sabertooth pet) there is something inaccurate.

The text bubble reads:
"What a strange looking egg. It's as hard - and as heavy - as a rock! There's no way this egg can hatch into a pet."

But the narrator only says:
"It's as hard - and as heavy - as a rock! There's no way this egg can hatch into a pet."

And in the quest before "long in the tooth" the voice actor of Alhazred says something like: "as much as I can give" whereas the speech line is "as much as I can give you". (I'm not quite sure the words in the first quest but I know that Alhazred misses out the last word).

If you can fix these two things up that would be great.

During my quest in Sardonyx entitled "Can't Go Home Again", after defeating Raptorial Sentry with Zarozinia the Deathsong, a dialogue appeared but instead of Zarozinia's face to be seen on the circle on the left side, it was Zaltanna the Mirromask's face who appeared. Also, when reviewing the dialogue of the same quest in my quest book, on the second dialogue, Zarozinia's name doesn't appear. These bugs may not be encountered by all or maybe just by me but still I wanted to tell about these errors I encounter.

I have a quest in Kondha Desert entitled "One Of Us" where I should speak to Prester the Blazingwind. On the first dialogue, I can see that it is Prester's face that is on the circle on the left side of the dialogue yet it's the voice of the narrator who speaks the dialogue.

So, I've got two for you :)

1. When you get the quest to defeat Nergal the Burned Lion, his name shows up with a comma (Nergal, the Burned Lion) above your experience bar but not on his actual self (Nergal the Burned Lion).

2. There is one spot in the crown shop where the type of item (if you have it on list) shows up as a grey/white circle. It is three spots down and moves with you as you scroll up and down.

Thanks!

In the first instance of Shadow Palace, the bear boss (sorry, forgot his name) says he's trained in Avalon, but his voice says "Grizzleheim"

Actually, it is a matter of choice. You can choose between Hades' or Hades's.

In the quest "Not in Kansas Anymore...", Dorothy Gale says something like "Can you say hi to Private Conolly for me?", when she should say, "Can you say hi to Private Conelly for me?". Small error, but you should fix it! One of the first side quests, after all!

I have found an error in Khrysalis. In Lost Woods, when you put the compass on, and it says all the area in a tan text bubble, Moon Cliffs is To Moon Cliffs, not Moon Cliffs. Thanks bye
